Daniel Cruson Jr

Office:Board of Education


I serve on the Board of Education so that I can help to ensure the high level of education that Newtown is known for providing to all of our students.



Personal Facts:
I was born and raised in Newtown and went through the school system from Kindergarten in Hawley school through senior year at Newtown High School (graduating in 2001).  Throughout college I spent holidays and summers back in Newtown, working in the administrative offices of the Board of Education for the Assistant Superintendent.  After graduating from college I spent a few years in Boston and then moved to Albany, NY when our first son was born to be closer to my wife's family.  As we Danny reached Kindergarten age we took a look at the school district and didn't like what we saw, so we made the decision to move back to Newtown so he would attend the excellent schools here.

I run my own web development business which allowed us to make the move without much trouble.  It also gives me a lot of flexibility and an opportunity to give back to the town and schools that I grew up with.  I work with a lot of organizations (I specialize in non-profits) and have become familiar with the workings of many different types of groups and boards.  This along with my time spent on the administrative end of the school system, and being student, I look forward to being able to give back to my home town and help ensure the continued educational excellence for my children and beyond.
